Date: April 13, 2019
Location: Hilton Anchorage Downtown
Event Begins: 6:00 pm
The 2019 Sweet Rivalry will kick off the new year with an exciting twist on past events. The evening will highlight two sweet rivalries and guests will be fully immersed in the confection competition.
Festivities will begin with cocktails and one-of-a-kind entertainment – a dessert sculpture competition. This culinary and architectural competition of all things sweet will bring together Alaska’s finest confectioners, and guests will watch in awe as their delicious visions come to life. The final winner be chosen by the highest bidder during the Live Auction.
Later, a multi-coursed gourmet dinner will be served, and while attendees enjoy the first succulent courses, Sweet Rivalry competitors will be finalizing their dessert entries. The final exclusive dessert course will be comprised of four unique confections made specially for this event to be enjoyed by guests!
This unsurpassed and unique dining event will combine two exciting culinary competitions and a gourmet dining experience not to be missed!
Sweet Rivalry is an annual event that raises funds for The Arc to continue its work in providing services and programs that benefit Alaskans who experience intellectual and developmental disabilities. Alaskan culinary teams will battle head-to-head in two competitions: the dessert sculpting competition where edible works of art using sugar and chocolate are built live; and our dessert course competition, featuring teams vying for your vote as you taste their exclusive dessert creations served during our ultimate dessert course.
